WW Week in review....


Hey Friends!! Friday again and another WW week in the books or on the scale I should say!! This week I lost 0 BUT I maintained my 10 pound total weight loss and that is fine by me! I have found a system that my body seems to like........loose weight one week and then the following week maintain it. So next week I will hopefully loose 1-2 pounds after this past week of being able to stay at my current weight. I think we all have to figure out what works best for us. 
NOW....I have some awesome recipes to share with you!! I have to remind myself that this is truly a lifestyle change and NOT a diet...so all these recipes constantly amaze me. I would make any of these wether they were WW or not! First up.....

So I am not a huge fan of "Buffalo" anything, not my favorite flavor BUT I am officially obsessed with this recipe! This is from my new favorite cooking blog Skinny Taste:
Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Skinnytaste.com 
Servings: 6 • Size: 1/2 cup chicken + veggies • Old Points: 3 pts • Points+: 3 pt
Calories: 147.7 • Fat: 0.1 g • Carb: 5.2 g • Fiber: 1.6 g • Protein: 24.9 g • Sugar: 1.7 g
Sodium: 879 mg 
Ingredients:
For the chicken:
  • 24 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup hot cayenne pepper sauce (I used Frank's)

For the wraps:
  • 6 large lettuce leaves, Bibb or Iceberg
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 large celery stalks, cut into 2 inch matchsticks

Directions:
In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn't enough). Cover and cook on high 4 hours.
Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the slow cooker with the 1/2 cup broth and the hot sauce and set to on high for an additional 30 minutes. Makes 3 cups chicken.

To prepare lettuce cups, place 1/2 cup buffalo chicken in each leaf, top with 1/4 cup shredded carrots, celery and dressing of your choice. Wrap up and start eating
I hope you all try out some of these recipes....I promise you will love em! Do you have any WW recipes to share? Leave a link in your comment and share!

Congrats on maintaining. You are doing great and the recipes look delicious. I may try the funfetti one. I actually have never seen that one before.

I'm making the WW cake this weekend, orange cake mix with coolwhip/chocolate frosting. I've been craving it all week.

I made this the other night and was blown away by how good it was. I served it over rice and even my two year old ate it.

The only thing I would change is use less brown sugar, maybe 1/4 cup instead of 1/3. It was a little too much on the sweet side.

I will have to try the lettuce wraps. They look good.
And I agree... no one person is alike, find what works for you.
